That's a mistake, sorry. "Assault" should say "Harbor" instead.

I'd like to, but that would be flash editing and that's not something I know how to do.

Unpack the downloaded file with winrar and copy/move the folder inside called "Tactical-Expansion" to your Crysis\mods folder.

this is awsome, but from what i can tell from the readme, i need to integrate the ammo pickups myself?

if so, how do i do it?

Kilroy357 May 12 2011, 7:33pm replied:

It's all in the readme file. For the campaign you just need to open the levels in the modded editor and export, but for custom maps you would need to place the special ammo yourself if you wanted to use it.

I admit it's not the easiest mod to install, but unfortunately there are limits to what I can do with coding alone. Uploading the level.pak files would be illegal as far as I know and the download would be ten times bigger.

Could you be more specific, please?
If the issue is crashing, make sure your folder structure is correct. The folder in your mods folder should be called "Tactical-Expansion", and should have 3 folders and 2 files inside it.

I extracted the files from the RAR to the crysis/mods folder. now I need to go to the sandbox editor and start a level so the changes fit in?

Kilroy357 Aug 11 2011, 8:47pm replied:

Yes, if you want the new ammo pickups to be in the levels. I admit it's not the fastest install ever, but it's the only way to add objects to the campaign levels without (illegally) uploading the level.pak files.

Let me know if you have any problems. :)

OK thanks. dont want you to get in truble for that ;)
one last question so I an be sure.
I start the level "Island" with the sandbox. exit and then start the game itself and the new ammo is in the game? or I need to play the level trough the sandbox editor.

Sorry to bother you but I cant get the sandbox running with the modified shortcut. I enter the sandbox -> open -> island. and after 5 seconds the editor crashes. it says "CryENGINE 2 Sandbox 2 (TM) has stopped working" windows is checking for a solution to the problem... and then crashes to the desktop.

First comment: You need to load the levels in the sandbox and click *file->export to engine* after loading each one. Once you've "exported-to-engine" each level, you can load the mod in the game with a modded shortcut just like with the sandbox.

Specifically, this exporting procedure modifies the file that I can't upload.

--

Second comment: If it's crashing, plan B is to move the levels folder located within "Tactical-Expansion/Game" to the "Crysis/Game" folder. Merge the folders and overwrite files when prompted.

Once that's done you can load the *default* sandbox and proceed with the open level + export procedure. Note that you won't actually see the new ammo pickups when you open the levels in the sandbox, but in game you will.

Ok....that's more than a little weird. Are you running the 1.21 patch? I haven't tested the mod on anything earlier, so all kinds of craziness could happen with an earlier version.

Yeah the game is up to date. when I play trough the sandbox i can see the ammo locations and I can pick it up but I cant use it.
Also when I export to engine the sandbox still crashes

Ok, here's a few things that could potentially go wrong:

1: Did you rename any folders when installing? If so, this would prevent the mod DLL from loading and cause the problem of not being able to use ammo after it's picked up.

2: Check that you only copied the "Tactical-Expansion" folder from the extracted .rar to the mods folder, and not the whole extracted .rar.

3: If there are minimods (drop in .pak files) in the Crysis/Game folder, they could cause issues with file conflicts. I'm not sure how the unlimited ammo glitch could happen, though.

4: Possible it's just a random editor goof up. Sometimes the program glitches and could cause the AI issues. Try copy/pasting the backup level(s) back into place and exporting again.

5: Failing that, I would try redownloading. I highly doubt the file got corrupted but I guess it's worth a try.

You add " -MOD Tactical-Expansion" to the end of the target field. Be sure to have a space before "-MOD".
Then just click on the modded shortcut after you get done making it.

Hey Kilroy357, I absolutely love the mod, you did a great job, but there is one or two hicups that i can't get past.

#1. I had to install through desura, it worked but i can't play the sandbox, now before you flip out and start yelling at me through cyberspace that I didn't read the "DON'T READ ME" file heres the second hicup.

#2. CRYTOOLS CAN'T FIND MY INSTALL!!!! Now as you would know that would majorley suck cus u need that to install the level.pak files properly, I played half a level and there where no ammo pick-ups, but thats due to not exporting to engine through Crytool's but crytools can't find my install as I mentioned.

So, at that note i would really appreciate your help, I read a couple comments befor and you seen to really give a ****, unlike some other developers.

Again thank you!

Plan B is go to Crysis install folder/Bin32 (or Bin64, depending on your OS).

Right-click on editor.exe -> create shortcut -> cut/paste shortcut to desktop.

Right-click on shortcut -> properties
Add " -MOD Tactical-Expansion" to the end of the target field.
Make sure there is a space before "-MOD".

Then you can use the shortcut to load the sandbox with the mod.
